MAPS, not MIPS; and MISC, not CISC or RISC.  Operation Mind.forth

http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/aisource.html (alternative Web site)
is gradually releasing the source code in Forth of a Mind program
for use by amateur robot builders who program in Forth on robots.

Mental Associations Per Second (MAPS) will be our AI benchmark if
we can get beyond the debugging phase and implement AI in the new
Minimal Instruction Set Computing (MISC) CPU chips running Forth.

Netizens have been asking, why Forth?  Bide a wee, please, and it
will be clear why we encroach upon the 4th of the robot builders.
Meanwhile anyone proficient in Smalltalk, Telescript, Java, etc.,
is welcome to inspect the AI project and code a Mind.xyz version:
